OneSound (formerly MAYC Orchestra and Singers) is one of the UK’s leading Christian worship youth choirs and bands. We host weekends packed full of music, prayer, and fellowship, where we help young people aged 16-26 to grow as musicians, leaders, and disciples of Christ so they can share their God-given musical gifts to inspire the wider church and community. We are currently looking to expand our work further to work with other age groups and more online content.
We are currently seeking to recruit a Chair of the Board of Trustees to lead the ongoing work of the charity in consultation with the already existing board members and teams (Finance, Marketing, Media and Events & Safeguarding). This is an excellent opportunity to be actively leading and shaping the work of a young, dynamic and current Christian charity with a national reach.
We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you have a proven ability to communicate and explain financial information to members of the Board and other stakeholders or if you have previous experience in youth work and developing programmes of youth work on a national level. An understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship is also desirable.
All our trustees are appointed on a voluntary basis and required to commit to a minimum term of appointment of 3 years. Board meetings currently take place virtually up to 6 times per year but we will hope to meet in person in the coming months. Trustees also have the opportunity to contribute to the work of our organisation outside of board meetings in a range of ways depending on their skillset. As the Chair you will be asked to oversee all the aspects of the charity and help guide the individual teams which will include attending specific meetings with each team as well, either virtually or in person.
If you have experience in Financial running of an organisation, Safeguarding, Youth Work or Fundraising then we would love to hear from you. Please download a copy of the job description and email a copy of a covering letter and any relevant experience to [email protected] by 1st September 2021. Once the deadline has passed we will arrange an interview should your application be successful.
